Anna Faris is thanking her lucky stars and the first responders that helped her family avoid a catastrophic tragedy during the Thanksgiving holiday.
The 43-year-old star was vacationing and rented a home in Lake Tahoe, California with several members of her family when she narrowly escaped death from carbon monoxide poisoning. Several of her guests reported that they were feeling ill but the 13 people initially wrote the feeling off as altitude sickness according to a press release put out by North Tahoe Fire Protection District.
Two guests ended up going to the hospital and it was determined that carbon monoxide poisoning was to blame. The group eventually called the authorities to check on the house and the remaining guests, according to PEOPLE.
After a thorough inspection of the property, the fire department determined that the house was filled with six times the maximum recommended indoor carbon monoxide levels despite having all the windows and doors open for ventilation.
